The Application Data Hub (ADH) software is a flexible and complete data communication and process automation package ready to be integrated in your embedded or x86 platform based Smart Grid product.
Based on a distributed real-time database and application management system it allows the integration of almost any SCADA communication protocol as client and server.
Fundamentals offers the most commonly used communication protocols such as IEC 61850, IEC 60870-5-101/103/104, DNP3 and Modbus, as well as cloud communication options via JSON over MQTT.
An IEC 61131 compliant programmable logic controller extend the capability of the ADH as true virtual Smart Grid application ready to be dropped into any embedded or x86 based product platform.
Our flexible software licensing system caters for your product specific ADH application configuration.
For ADH application configuration our eNode Designer configuration tool is available, which simplifies system engineering resulting in reduction of project costs and implementation time.
ADH – Distributed Application Manager and Real-Time Database
The ADH application manages all implemented communication and automation software applications during system start-up and monitors the status of the applications during normal operation.
The system real-time database, as part of the ADH, receives all data point changes from any implemented application, uses that information for managing a real-time database image of the entire system and re-distributing of data point information according to configured mapping tables.
Handling of simple and enhanced security command structures is an integral part of the ADH.
The ADH and associated software applications can be distributed in a multi-processor system and linked through an Ethernet network.
Target Platform Software Integration
Product specific software applications are used for integrating the ADH software on a target platform. Typical product target platform software applications include the integration of physical inputs/outputs and communication port drivers.
The product specific software applications plug into the ADH software the same way as ready-to-use applications.
The eNode Designer allows product specific configuration options to be added to the product specific integration software.
